About me? |
Uhhh I've grow up in Australia, but don't exactly match the Australian prototype (except for the accent, unfortunately.) - I have brown hair, fair skin, avoid team sports, prefer books to TV and can be quite the introvert. I spend a lot of time absorbed in imaginary worlds, I love philosophical and metaphysical discussions and I am easliy distracted from reality by my OC's/imaginary friends.
I like to think art is an instinct we have - art in words, paint, dance, the angle of photograph. It's the impulse to capture what's internally felt or perceived, and bring it into universal access.
I love all the people who dare to use their brains and hearts even when it is exhausting.
I want to travel the world and have many millions of adventures before I die. Nothing wrong with dreaming.
"Painting is a state of being...painting is self discovery...every good artist paints what he is." -Jackson Pollock
"I don't care if you're black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you. Simple as that."
"All life is connected. Love everything that lives."

"Don't go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
- Ralph Waldo Emmerson
"People who lean on logic and philosophy and rational exposition end by starving the best part of the mind."
-William Butler Yeats
"A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death"
- Albert Einstein
"For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream."
-Vincent Van Gogh
"Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame!"
- William Butler Yeats
"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."
-Vincent Van Gough
"One may have a blazing hearth in one's soul and yet no one ever came to sit by it. Passers-by see only a wisp of smoke from the chimney and continue on their way."
- Vincent Van Gogh
